Thanks for posting. I'm glad this is finally happening and doubly stoked that Bosko is doing the remodel!

sweet, in the Vieux Carré.

down near the river. looks like one could stay in the warehouse district, then stop at the Bum's place on the walk (stumble?) to Cafe du Monde.

laissez les bon temps rouler!

Can't wait! New Orleans being one our favorite haunts that we visit several times a year from Houston via Amtrak's Sunset Limited train. And soon to have a new Tiki establishment to visit there, to boot. Awesome!

Coincidentally (for me at least)...the Bienville House Hotel was the first hotel I ever stayed at in New Orleans over 36 years ago, in which we stayed on our nation's Bicentennial, July 4, 1976. It was kind of a dump of back then (The Best Western Bienville House), but glad to see on recent visits that it has benefited from new ownership, management and recent renovations. Very nice little hotel now.

Anyone heard any updates on this? I'll be staying a night in NOLA at the end of Sept. Fingers crossed they'll get it open on time.

I need to reach out to my friends that still stay in NOLA to see if there is any local buzz and info... Ill def make the drive out of Austin to check it out, maybe even for the opener if possible.

I just returned yesterday from New Orleans. On Tuesday, I stopped by and snapped this:



Nothing really to report. Everything was locked up and the windows were all papered over, so nothing to see or sneak a peek at. Front desk had no new info.

I'll be back in October. Hopefully it'll be open for business by then.
